Thank you, to ones who give us a huge part of their lives.

School is starting back soon, and teachers already fill the halls. While students finish up days at the lake and pick up back to school supplies, teachers are putting together rooms and working full days at the school again. Their jobs do not end in May when the last bell rings and it does not pick back up when August rolls around. Teaching is a year-round job of stressing, planning and doing so much more than just your job descriptions.

Above and beyond is your norm.

Above and beyond is not in your job descriptions, but it should be. I have had some incredible teachers in my life, who not only helped me get through school but through life. They have gone above and beyond in so many ways and so have so many others. From answering my questions after class to just giving me life advice, and treating me as if I were their own child, their help knows no bounds. They spend hours working on lesson plans. They stress over students who do not worry to stress over themselves. They support their students at games and other events. They create a community that so many are so incredibly thankful for. Becoming a teacher is something that many do, becoming a great teacher like so many of the ones in my life takes a special person.

They are caring. They are kind. They are funny. They cry because of us and with us. They lift us up. They have good days and they have bad. They are human.

They teach us so much more than just education.

So, thank you.

So thank you to the teachers in my life and so many others. You guys are all so incredible, and there is no way I can really explain the way you all have changed my life and shaped me into the person I am today. And so as school starts I just wanted to remind you all about how much I and so many others appreciate you all. All the hard work. All the tears. All the early mornings and late nights. All the money spent on supplies and decorations. All the jokes in class. All the games you attend. All of it and so much more.

You are all champions.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
